Clinton Urges Syria Allies to Get on ‘Right Side of History’

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged nations doing business with Syria to cut off trade and arms sales to the regime of President Bashar al-Assad and “get on the right side of history.”

Citing a “crescendo of condemnation” against Assad’s five-month crackdown on protesters, Clinton used an appearance with reporters at the State Department yesterday to make a public appeal for increasing the international pressure building against the Syrian government.
